Google’s chief executive Larry Page has taken a swipe at Facebook and Apple, claiming the giant social network is “doing a really bad job on their products” and that the iPhone maker’s limited range of products is “unsatisfying”.

In an interview with Wired magazine, carried out last year before Facebook had launched its new Graph Search tool, Page, 39, tells Steven Levy that he wants the company he co-founded to come up with ideas that are “moon shots” – such as the self-driving car now being introduced in some American states – and that he isn’t worried about breaking laws in some cases if the result is a better product.
